Saul of Tarsus grew up in Jerusalem learning from the greatest sage of his generation. That means he probably had the Hebrew Bible memorized, along with the Mishnah as it existed in his time. And, surprise! If you know what to look for you can see his Hebraic mindset peeking through even in his Greek letters. Here's an example. This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about these questions: ~Are the middle days of Passover and Tabernacles holy or "profane"? ~Did Paul get his metaphor of irrigated versus naturally watered fields from the Mishnah? ~Are you spiritually mature? How about your congregation? Here's how to tell. ~This Greek word used in Mishnah, Peshitta, and Delitzsch NT is spelled four different ways. ~What does Jewish law do with people whose gender is both, neither, or unknown? ~See the boy riding on his Abba's shoulders and going up to the Temple? Adorbs. Watch the full lesson and check out this ongoing series by clicking through this episode or by going to holylanguage.com > Learn > Mishnah Snapshots.
